    I'm probably in the minority of dexxers that actually use the targeting system instead of just point and clicking, so you confused dexxers please move on to another thread.

    I use select next "mobile" currently, and constantly have to toggle through npc vendors, or pixies (as of late).

    I do not like select "nearest" because more times than not I'm chasing someone, and it never targets that player.

    Select next "hostile" is useless.

    Select next "player" would be a simple, and welcomed addition.

    Biggest problem for me are summons - they always get targeted first, as they are red. It's pretty annoying to have to cycle through several EVs until you get that enemy faction player. Especially unpleasant if you have always attack on and all those EVs start attacking you.

    Bothers me too.

    How about a smart selection on the mobile.
    - Select nearest war guild
    - Select nearest faction war member
    - Select nearest faction ally member
    - Select nearest monster
    - Select nearest ally
    - Select nearest party member
    - Select nearest guild member
    - Select last aggressor
    - Select lowest health mobile

    It's a tad buggy.

    Funny when the Stygian Dragon is flying toward you and you receive the message "There are no hostiles on the screen."
    ... Really, I'll bet he just wants to hug me... with his teeth.

    Gotta agree with saint here. The targetting system is still VERY useful for good dexxers but has some serious flaws at the same time. Nothing like attacking a vendor at Yew gate with select next mobile while you get spells thrown at you.

    targeting system is in needing of a complete overhaul

    I dont like the target lowest player idea, i think it would just lead to people trying to automate group pvp. without going into too much detail

    and otherwise just dumb down pvp, archers just standing still spamming their AI/target lowest player macro

    im sure people could argue the same for target closest, but unless everyone stand on top of each other, i dont see it

    unrelated: saint im a little jealous of your sig, what do i need to do to get a cool sig about me and 3.0

    You're probably right about that.
